Relation between Hook Depth and Fishing Efficiency in Surface Longline Gear

  title={Relation between Hook Depth and Fishing Efficiency in Surface Longline Gear},
  author={Ram{\'o}n Mu{\~n}oz-Ch{\'a}puli},
The longline gear employed in this study consisted of "baskets" between floats (Fig. 1). Float lines measured about 7m, while the main line within each basket measured about 1200 m. Branch lines (33 per basket) were 15m long. This standard gear design is modified by ences by each species. Suzuki et al. (1977) state that the same fishing methods and longline gear are frequently used regardless of the areas and species. These authors also remark that there have been no systematic studies on the… CONTINUE READING
